The Restoration From Hell Part Three
POST PURCHASE-THE AFTERMATH
Oddly enough the 59 Belvedere was the same ivory white color that my dad’s was 50 years ago. It looked like a good solid driver-a decent un-restored original. I kept it intact for over a year-it ran okay, it stopped, started etc. etc.. Pretty much all you could ask from an old car purchased from an unmotivated previous owner.I look back at those days as a high point in my relationship with this 50’s classic.

This question is one that really doesn't have a logical answer-there's no logic involved when it comes to saving something that Detroit designed to look more out of date in 2 years than your 97-year-old Aunt Bessie.
We can hate the automakers for that.Or we can thank them 50 years later for the kind of ruthless marketing practice that produced the most unique-looking cars in the history of Detroit. We can thank them by saving the few that are left.
I chose the latter...
